While our memories diminish over time and forgetting what isn't needed is very useful to us, there are ways we can enhance our ability to remember.
Here are a few of Lisa's favourite tips from Remember:
GET ENOUGH SLEEP
You need seven to nine hours of nightly slumber to optimally consolidate the new memories you create today. Getting enough sleep reduces your risk of developing Alzheimer's.
You can't remember a thing unless you first give that thing your attention. Decrease distractions (put down your phone). Stop multitasking. Pay active attention to what you hope to remember.
